CONFIGURABLE SHOTGUN SUPPRESSION
The SilencerCo Salvo 12 gauge shotgun is the world’s first commercially viable shotgun suppressor. The suppressor contains a system of rods and baffles to contain the blast of a shotgun. The rods allow the gas to escape into the baffles while preserving the function of the wad after it exists the barrel. The modular system of rods, baffles and caps allows for the customization of the Salvo 12 depending on your desired weight and noise reduction requirements. This modularity also allows for easy cleanup of the suppressor. The Salvo 12 is sold in the 12″ length and comes with the 12″ Rod Kit. Additional Rod kits, to shorten the Salvo to 10″, 8″ or 6″, are available for purchase and can be installed the end user. In the 12″ configuration, the Salvo 12 makes the blast of a shotgun more quiet than an unsuppressed 22lr, well below the 140 dB hearing-safe level set by OSHA. In addition to reducing sound pressure levels, the Salvo 12 significantly improves the perceived recoil of a shotgun; making shooting a more enjoyable experience for all.
Everyone who owns a gun owns a shotgun, but until SilencerCo stepped in, most of them had never been suppressed. The Salvo™ 12 is the only commercially-viable, modular, hearing safe shotgun silencer on the market. Designed to operate with most pump action and semi automatic shotguns and almost all commercially available ammunition, at its full length of 12″ the Salvo 12 brings sound down to 136.8 dB at the muzzle with #7 shot. Configurations of 6″, 8″, 10″, and 12″ allow the end user to customize the Salvo 12 for sporting clay, waterfowl, turkey hunting, home defense, and many other applications and accept the appropriate tradeoff of size for sound reduction.
